Computer Lab Logos

I suspect that this project is a change of plans from what normally goes on in Graphic Design III, mainly because I got the identical assignment in Design Applications III!  Obviously, I couldn't produce the same logos for two classes, so this met double the work.  However, I wouldn't have to be mentally juggling two … Continue reading Computer Lab Logos

Low Poly Artwork

And lo, we have a Low Poly Art design that properly belongs in Design Applications III but turned out so darn good that I just had to post it here.  Seriously, I can't believe I actually pulled this one off.  I've been dying to try something like this for forever, but Adobe Illustrator is pretty intimidating. Regardless, it … Continue reading Low Poly Artwork

CRUCIBLE Graphic Design Manual – Preliminary Sketches

Over the next week and a half, I will be designing a Graphic Standards Manual for a design competition agency called Crucible.  Logos are below. It's a big, very intimidating project, so I've done a lot of brainstorming and viewing other GSMs before compiling my thoughts into a "brief" which will guide my design process. After … Continue reading CRUCIBLE Graphic Design Manual – Preliminary Sketches

New Project: Design A Book!

Make that book cover since the pages will be blank, essentially making this a non-book.  Assuming that this is a thing...  Anyway, I planned out my workflow so that I can see just how much time I do waste on the weekends. Workflow: Choose three titles to work from Create three “streams” of sketches from these … Continue reading New Project: Design A Book!

Pecan Pie Vodka?

Apparently there's a lot for me to learn about vodka.  I knew vodka was made from starch rich material like potatoes or sorghum, but I had no idea that it came in flavors, let alone flavors like pecan pie of all things. 10 Flavored Vodkas You Should Really Try The 13 Strangest Vodka Flavors  And gendered marketing. … Continue reading Pecan Pie Vodka?

Real Problems, Real Solutions FINAL

I have created three campaign posters to be used by localized, grassroots movements and volunteers for mustang advocacy.  My posters are designed to create awareness in the average person by comparing American mustangs to other iconic endangered species.  My hope is that this will help change the perspective of the wild horse as an invasive … Continue reading Real Problems, Real Solutions FINAL

Inspiration on an empty tank

I run empty some weeks, mainly because school and work feel like one massive full-time job at 70 hours.  Oh wait, that's exactly what it is.  My bad. Empty I may feel, but the deadlines don't care.  I spent two days dreaming up sketches and then I had to turn those sketches into legit ideas. … Continue reading Inspiration on an empty tank

Real Problems, Real Solutions

I love my Wacum Intous Pro Tablet, but I'm not comfortable enough with it to be fully creative.  This meant that I had to dig out my art supplies from the first semester from the pile of boxes in my room (I'm moving in March, slowly packing up my stuff).  They were at the very … Continue reading Real Problems, Real Solutions

Inspiration: a definition

What does it mean to be inspired? "Inspire" is so overused that we’ve forgotten what it means. The original definition means “to draw in breath, to inhale, to infuse.” Applied to ideas, poetry, and art, the word inspire means to be infused, as God breathed life into man. This is suggest a higher working indwelling … Continue reading Inspiration: a definition
